The party is ambushed along the trail between Rimija and the temple by a group of crime ring members, and one of them gets away, while another is captured and imprisoned. Later, after searching for clues and gathering information about the possible whereabouts of other criminal activity, the PCs get rooms at the Forest Spirit tavern and private stable, split up to follow up on different leads, and some of them are ambushed in the south market. One half-orc, a halfling, and a tengu get away after the market stalls are damaged by the explosive devices they use, and the tengu thug manages to take down one of the PCs during his escape. After gathering clues and tending to wounds, the party chooses to sleep at the tavern from 5pm to 1am, and recover their daily resources before searching the town once again.

Timeline of Events
In the late morning, about 2/3 the way along the trail leading back to Rimija from the temple after having accomplished their task, the PCs were returning to Rimija’s Major Captain in order to report the information of their events, when they are ambushed on the trail by several suspects. Quyang Guy Ming gets away on his horse, but Akash Ginh names him as her superior when interrogated by the PCs for more information. Capturing her, they take her back to Rimija, along the north trail, directly to the Guard’s Hall, after stopping only momentarily at one of the guard’s outpost towers along the forest trail. The Major Captain jails her at the Guard’s Hall, and the PCs are assigned to root out any criminal activity, and capture or neutralize the enemy threat to the town’s wellbeing. After splitting up and following several leads, a portion of the party is attacked in a staged event which takes place in the south market, including several explosions which damaged market stalls and surrounding flammable structures, and produced smoke (which is against the town’s smoke laws). Several suspects escaped, including a half-orc male, a halfling male, and a tengu male, and all the devices were deliberately destroyed by being activated, but one tengu male was neutralized – although he is in critical condition, he will recover in jail (he was taken by guards to the Town Hall’s small secondary jail because of his wounds, instead of being taken to the Guard’s Hall on the north side of town). One of the PCs attempted to stop the escaping tengu suspect as he rushed to the scene, but the tengu nearly killed him before getting away. No other suspects were captured or witnessed during or after the event.
